Another unique find while traveling this summer. We stopped to use the Internet at the  Munising Schools Public Library while there I saw a card catalog that looked to be in use. On closer inspection I saw that it is a Seed Library. There are envelopes of seeds in the drawers with instructions on planting. They offer instructions for saving seeds to keep the Seed Library going. There is an instructional flyer on top of the catalog with websites that provide more information.

I came across this Free Library at the Castle Rock County Park near Friendship, WI.  This library is part of the Little Free Library movement  that was started Wisconsin in 2009. It has now become an international program. I will keep watching for more to share as we travel.

Shortstop: Crows Creek Campground, Smithville, MO

We’re in what we call “repositioning mode” – a few days in which we travel longer distances and do shorter stays to get to a different part of the country. Because of that we did a one night “shortstop” at Crows Creek Campground on Smithville Lake, just north of Kansas City, MO. Crows Creek is a big county run campground with over 400 campsites. Around half of the sites have 30 or 50 amp electric and a good number of the 30 amp sites have water hookups too. I think all but a couple of sites are back-in. There are no sites with sewer connections, but there is a large dump station near the entrance to the campground. We saw a nice playground and the grass was freshly mowed. The restrooms were clean. Many of the campsites are near the lake, although I think all the lakefront sites are electric only (no water hookups). The campground is less than 10 miles west of I35, but County Road E, which you travel the last 3 or 4 miles is rather narrow and a bit rough in spots. Our Verizon signal was a good 4G and it should be pretty easy to get a satellite signal there.

This beautiful library is just a few years old with something for all ages. I was greeted by a warm and friendly staff who are available to answer questions and give directions. I appreciated the ongoing book sale a was able to pick a paperback to carry and read this summer. For more information go to whitneylibrary.org.
